With the help of key allies on the ground, "Wheeler" converses with real people in real locations, with every musical number performed live. The line between reality and fiction blurs as Wheeler chases his dream in this touching tribute to old school country legends.

sittin' in the drive.


I was too,

when daddy came home with it.

I gave him some sh*t.

You know where they make

this pickup?

I would think Japan.

No, man. San Antonio.


Swear to god, man.

San Antonio.


It's not a bad truck too,

you know.

It gets good mileage,

good power on here.

Yeah, it drives smooth.


Wheeler, we never got

a chance to talk about...

What you went through

a few years back.

Yeah, I don't wanna

go there, Bobby.

Look, I'm sorry.

I care about you.

I just... wanna get an idea

of how you dealt with it.

I mean, years went by and...

You didn't talk to anyone.

I was runnin', man,

like you hear about everybody.

When you're in pain, you run.

You wanna forget who you are,

forget where you come from.

What changed, man?

Moved back in with my daddy,

was on my farm,

started writin' songs again.

Bad things happen

to good people, man.

The way of the world.

The mavericks are lookin'

pretty good this season.

You gotta come down

for some games, man.

Went to a couple with daddy

last year.

They got these chicken fingers.

Me and daddy, we'd go through

three orders Durin' the game.

I know he's proud of you

for takin' this journey.

Yeah... I'm just happy

he's somewhere else now.

He had a good, long life.

He was a good man.

Yeah, he was.

Even though he drove

a Japanese truck in the end.

Hold on. Hold on, boys.

Hell yeah!

I can't believe...

We're comin' into town, man.

We finally made it.

I do need

to find a toilet, though.

All right, I'm gettin' off, man.

I just wanna drive down Broadway

before we find

a place to stay, all right?

Let's do it.


Hold on.

We made it to Nashville.

Hold on. I'm gonna

make a left here, I think.

That's the Ryman!

That's Ryman right there!
